Winter Garden Pretties
I am a huge lover of winter gardens. One of my favorite quotes about gardening is this one:
Dilettante gardeners love the spring and summer; real gardeners also love the winter." - Anne Scott-James 'Down to Earth' (Bloomsbury Gardening Classics)
Winter gardens are full of interesting surprises, especially if you forget to cut down last year's spent flowers.
These are the hostas in Lily's garden. They make for some beautiful structure this time of year.
The seed pods of most hostas make beautiful winter gardens - if you can bear to look at them through the fall. These were tucked away in a part of the garden that we didn't see much in the craziness of the fall.
